The latest Diamond Dogs to be tabbed in the pro draft are pitcher Evan Mitchell of Marietta, Ga., infielder/pitcher Daryl Norris of Fairhope, Ala., and pitcher Luis Pollorena of Laredo, Texas.

Mitchell (0-1, 3.74) was selected in the 13th round by the Cincinnati Reds (405th overall pick), while Norris (.219/0-0, 6.23) went to the Detroit Tigers in the 22nd round (666th pick) and Pollorena (6-3, 4.32) was taken by the Texas Rangers in the 23rd round (700th pick).
